Applicant and Student Services Counselor
Responsible for working directly with the program’s students to prepare for and navigate reentry.
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: assisting with college application materials, arranging housing plans, and coaching students through life circumstances.
Team members who work in this role allow our students to receive extremely individualized support, which sets them up for success when reentering society and allows them to overcome cycles of poverty, homelessness, and incarceration.
The ideal candidate will have experience or demonstrated interest in working with marginalized populations and should be passionate about social justice, prison reform, and prisoner reentry and education.
We ask that volunteers be willing to commit a minimum of 2 hours per week and a duration of at least 3 months to ensure our students get the continued, consistent support they need.

About POST-PRISON EDUCATION PROGRAM
PO BOX 31092, SEATTLE, WA 98119, US
The Post-Prison Education Program aims to dramatically reduce recidivism by harnessing the power of education. The Program offers hope and opportunity to people leaving prison by providing the support needed to gain a meaningful education and become active members of their communities. Formerly imprisoned people are supported in finding employment, housing, mental health and other services to break free from cycles of hopelessness, poverty and imprisonment and achieve a higher education. In turn, an education opens the door to sustaining a living wage, clean and sober housing, responsible living and strengthened families--the most important factors in breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty and crime, thereby increasing community safety and decreasing taxpayer dollars spent on repeated incarceration.
We focus on the most vulnerable.
We do whatever it takes.
We don’t give up.
We hold ourselves accountable.
We push for systemic change.
